Yale Interdisciplinary Stress Seminar Series

The goal of this monthly series is to bring together members of the Yale community doing outstanding research related to stress, trauma and health across molecular to public health levels of analysis, and with prevention and treatment development and testing. Speakers at all levels of training are invited to share their recent findings and perspectives on stress-related research questions. We are committed to amplifying individuals from groups that are historically underrepresented in academic science. We aim to build a network of stress researchers that fosters interdepartmental and interdisciplinary collaboration. Through the creation of this network, our long-term goal is to drive research and discovery that can reduce the toxic effects of stress and trauma and improve health and chronic disease outcomes.

Please contact Drs. Elizabeth Goldfarb ( or Rajita Sinha ( to join the YSC community and listserv.
